Our Diversity

SON classroom Diversity means enrichment. The School of Nursing welcomes and embraces differences in ethnicity, race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, occupation, socioeconomic status and perspective.

Diversity means celebration. We celebrate voices just as we celebrate environments that support sensitivity and competence in caring for individuals, families, groups and communities with diversity.

Diversity means improving access. Access to affordable and quality care involves providing a well-prepared healthcare workforce and developing new knowledge about the challenges health care consumers face.

Diversity means dialogue. The School of Nursing is committed to preparing nurse leaders. Nurturing diversity is a core competency of excellent nursing practice.
